Introducing Oliver Owl! This pattern was Bramble Owl Softie by Sonya Philip. I was very pleased with how it came out, though I didn’t have enough time to take really good photos. It was for a baby shower this past weekend. I paired it with an owl baby blanket that I sewed. I loved the fabric! The yarn was also fabulous. I think I would try bulkier yarns if I made the pattern again to get a rounder look. I would also modify the eyes and simply do an i-cord wrapped around the center of the eye. I could probably even do an attached i-cord and skip one sewing step.
I’m interested in finding more locally made supplies for crafting. Does anyone have any great resources for fabric made and printed in the United States? How about ideas for stuffing instead of imported polyfill?
